Essence Magazine's 5th Annual Black Women In Music Event

The 5th annual Essence Black Women In Music event took place at 1 OAK on Wednesday (January 22) in West Hollywood, California.

Leona Lewis: I haven’t always been a fan of Leona’s style, but here she showcases her curves wearing a gorgeous cobalt-blue one-shoulder frock styled with metallic accessories to complement her waistband.

Michelle Williams: The singer opted for a black-and-white BCBG ‘Patrycia’ jumpsuit featuring a mandarin collar from the Fall 2013 collection. While I love the jumpsuit, the pants are way too long for her.

Emeli Sandé: The British singer added some sparkle to the proceedings wearing a Paule Ka navy neoprene three-quarter-sleeve dress with shell-and-beaded embellishments styled with a sexy pair of lightly embellished blue sandals.

DJ Kiss: Wearing her go-to designer, the DJ wore a Peter Pilotto ‘Corrine’ 3D-effect digital print dress with directional additions of fluted cap sleeves and the curved hem which she styled with all black accessories. Only her fuchsia lip was in danger of upstaging this frock.
